Basic Intake Worker Training
The Department of Children and Families in collaboration with the Wisconsin Juvenile Court Intake Association and the Wisconsin Child Welfare Professional Development System, has developed a two day online training entitled “Basic Intake Worker Legal Affairs Online Training” as the first two days of the five day Basic Juvenile Court Intake Worker Training. The Department of Children and Families will continue to partner with the Wisconsin Juvenile Court Intake Association to provide the remaining three days of the intake training in accordance with DCF Administrative Rule. This training would continue to meet requirements pursuant to 48.06 and 938.06.
Pursuant to 48.06 and 938.06, all workers that are assigned to perform court intake worker duties (taking and holding in custody, carrying a pager, conducting intake conferences, etc.) as part of their job are required to attend this training. This face-to-face classroom training is for three (3) days and a total of 18 hours of class time. This training is to be taken after the initial two (2) day web-based training requirement has been successfully completed, in order to meet the five (5) day, 30 hour training requirement. There is a required exam at the conclusion of training that will cover material learned in both the two day online training and the three day classroom training. The Wisconsin Child Welfare Professional Development System will award certificates of completion of the training for participants that meet the attendance and examination requirements.
